I'm not messing with those Bison!

I remember going through introductory training for being a Park ranger (worked at Acadia Nat. Park when I was younger) and we were shown all kinds of video's of those things mauling people. Bears are not what you should be worried about, it's getting to close to a Bison or between a calf and mom. Obviously don't play with the bear cubs
